Is it worth climbing Mount Everest or not?

Climbing Mount Everest is very difficult feat. I believe that it's not a good idea to climb Everest. One reason is that people don't listen to their Sherpa. A woman who was close to the top was told by her Sherpa that she was too exhausted, but she didn't listen and got to the top. On the way down she died of exposure and exhaustion. If I were on Everest I would listen to your Sherpa even if I was close to the top I could say I climbed it. Another reason is that you could fall asleep and never wake up. Another woman had to sit down and she fell asleep and never woke up. I would not want to be on Everest and fall asleep then never wake up. The last reason is that avalanches could come out of nowhere and burry you alive. A man was caught in an avalanche and killed. His body is now one of the checkpoints and it's called “green boots”. Avalanches are scary, and I would not want to be in one. Would you?

Is globalization making the world stronger or weaker?

Globalization is making the world stronger. Globalization is where different people around the world contribute and work on something together. One reason why globalization makes the world stronger is because it can help poorer countries move away from poverty. Wealthier countries will build factories in poor places. Even if it's not not making a lot of money, it's still making some money. Another reason that it makes the world stronger is globalization leads to a more peaceful world. A lot of countries are economically dependent, so they want good relationships with other countries so it doesn't cause war. A third reason is globalization creates new jobs. It opens up a whole new world for the poor. People who did not have opportunity to work before, now do. Globalization makes people dependent on each other and brings the world closer together.

Q&A

A citizen is a legal member of a city, state, or country. Citizens have the right of freedom of speech and other rights. Paying taxes is a responsibility that all good citizens do. So is voting and obeying the law. If someone breaks the law they go to court, and maybe go jail. Voting is something that every good citizen should do, but not have to do. When they do vote, good citizens should always be informed. Finally, good citizens take responsibility for themselves, respect other people's property, and are active volunteers in their community.

What is the most effectively vet form of government?

Representative Democracy is the most effective style of government. Citizens elect leaders to represent their rights and interests. This way is more effective because more interests are heard, and more people have a say in the rules of their government. Many people hold the power, as compared to a Dictatorship where one person has complete power, and Oligarchy with a few people that have complete power. With representative democracy, everybody has a chance to vote and has a say. More different interests are protected. That is why representative democracy is more effective than direct democracy.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

There are Centripetal forces that are for, and Centrifugal forces that are against Supranational cooperation. In this paragraph im going to talk about how centripetal forces should unite Europe. One centripetal force is the Common Market. It unites Europe by allowing goods and workers to travel more freely. Another centripetal force is the development of the Supranational level of government. The Supranational level of government unites Europe by allowing it to work on issues that everyone shares, like pollution. You may not agree with me, but I think that centripetal is the answer to Supranational cooperation.

How might having a valuable resource affect a region?

Having a valuable resource like oil can have a negative affect in a region like SW Asia in many ways. One negative affect can be that countries will go to war over the valuable resource. For example, Iraq attacked Kuwait to take over their country and steal their oil reserves. Iraqi soldiers set more than 730 oil reserves on fire. However, the US went to help Kuwait and saved their oil wells. Another negative affect is that the oil is not distributed equally in this region. For example, Saudi Arabia is the largest country in the region and also has the most oil. However, it won't make as much money selling oil as Kuwait will because it has a much larger population to support. Little Kuwait has a tenth of the world’s oil, which is more oil than most other countries in the world. It makes a lot of money and has a small population so the GDP there is high.

How do people adapt to a desert region?

People adapt to a desert region in different ways. Nomads adapt to the desert region you walking many miles with their herds to find water and grass.nomads trade milk and cheese from their animals for goods they can't grow themselves. Nomads move around to try and find oases and find wells where they can keep their animals hydrated. Another way to adapt is by using modern technology. For example trucks are replacing camels when camels have heavy loads. Small planes are also replacing camels because it gets people to places quicker. Trucks and planes can carry more stuff to places where they want to go. There are many ways that people adapt to the desert region.
